Lyttelton Harbor Dredging Program Set for August

first_imgLyttelton Port Company (LPC) said in they latest release that one of the world’s largest dredges – the Fairway – will sail into Lyttelton Harbor in August as the port’s channel deepening project gets underway.The Fairway will be a permanent fixture in the harbor for 11 weeks as it works to deepen the channel, which will see the overall dredging program become New Zealand’s biggest to date, LPC said.LPC was granted resource consent in March 2018 to dredge the harbor shipping channel to increase its draught.The 230 meter-long Fairway will collect silty clay from the seabed of the harbor, as it works to widen the navigation channel by 20 meters and deepen it to allow vessels with a 13.3 meter draught to call at Lyttelton.The first stage of work will see the Fairway lengthen the channel by 2.5km.The channel deepening, which will allow bigger ships to access the port, will provide Canterbury’s importers and exporters the best possible and most cost effective international shipping solutions, said LPC.The initial stage of the dredging program has been awarded to Netherlands-based contractor Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. Built in 1997, the Fairway is one of Boskalis’ 30 trailing suction hopper dredgers.The Fairway will make its journey from Mumbai, India, after completing its latest project – and make a stop in Singapore for a thorough clean before heading to Lyttelton Harbor. The Cawthron Institute has worked with LPC and Boskalis to develop a biosecurity plan.In Singapore, it will go into a dry dock to be water blasted and have its antifoul refreshed. The interior spaces will be cleaned and flushed with fresh water. After being inspected, it will sail directly to New Zealand.last_img read more

Nadal may pull out of Shanghai Masters

Nadal was looking to strip back his schedule following success at the US Open. The world No 2 needed four hours and 50 minutes to beat Daniil Medvedev in a grueling final on Sunday. Such a difficult battle left Nadal struggling to get changed in the dressing room in the aftermath. The 18-time Grand Slam winner was set to return to action alongside Roger Federer at the Laver Cup next weekend. But Nadal was considering pulling out of the Shanghai Masters, which starts on October 5, to ensure he is fresh for the Paris Masters later that month. “It’s hard for me to tell my plans right now,” Nadal told Spanish media during a conference call. “I shot off after the final to the plane and I didn’t have time to talk to the team. “They arrived later in Palma and I hope that we have a conversation soon. “Anyway, to decide the calendar, I have to wait to see how my body evolves. “The immediate thing is to play the Laver Cup (September 20-22), which is planned. “The next thing I do not know. “Priority objectives from here at the end of the year and also with a view to the next one. It will be one or the other depending on those objectives. “The Masters in Asia is still yet to be decided.

Wenger – We’re getting there

first_img Chile forward Alexis Sanchez took his tally to 10 goals with a double strike to finally break down Burnley’s resistance and send the Gunners on their way to a 3-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium. Following an indifferent spell, Arsenal have now won three matches in a row, and are unbeaten since losing at Chelsea before the international break. With the return of England international Theo Walcott, who made a late cameo after 10 months out with a serious knee injury, Wenger will soon have plenty of more attacking options. France forward Olivier Giroud is also set to be in contention following the next international break after recovering earlier than expected from a broken foot. “For Theo it must be great as well to see that everybody wants him to come on,” said Wenger, who could give Walcott another run out on Tuesday night in the Champions League against Anderlecht when midfielder Jack Wilshere is expected to be available again after a minor knee problem. “Lukas Podolski also played very well after he came on, he could have scored two. “When you think that we have not got a number of offensive players like Ozil, Wilshere and Giroud, there is a lot of competition in the forward positions.” While Wenger may feel his squad is now moving in the right direction, there remain more questions than answers for Burnley boss Sean Dyche. However, with home matches coming up against the likes of Hull, Aston Villa and Newcastle, spirits within the Clarets camp remain high that illusive first top-flight win will come sooner rather than later. “There has to be a future on what you do. You can’t rely on a lucky win, or another one because you are never going to improve and build a team,” said Dyche. “You have to build it by method and ours is reasonably sound, but we are coming up against teams who are of a higher level, and there is no negative in that.” Press Association Arsene Wenger feels Arsenal are slowly finding the right balance to kick-start their Barclays Premier League campaign. Wenger believes the way his team continued to stay positive, despite the frustrations of seeing Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton pull off a string of saves and the defenders make last-gasp blocks, has them moving in the right direction again. “In the recent games at home we were not patient and we have learned. We look a bit more balanced between offence and defence,” said manager Wenger, whose side are now fourth, above West Ham on goal difference, but still nine points off leaders Chelsea. “We were less in trouble when we lost the ball, we were serious and that is very important in the efficiency.” Key to Arsenal’s resurgence has been the impressive form of Sanchez, a £30million summer buy from Barcelona, who Wenger has deployed in a more central attacking role following injury to record-signing Mesut Ozil. Wenger is confident Sanchez can support the additional responsibility, having compared him and the Uruguayan former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez to tough South American “street footballers” in the build-up to Saturday’s match. “I was ready to give him time if he needed it, but he has settled in much quicker than expected,” the Arsenal boss said. “Now I play him through the middle and he has shown he can find the ball, he can dribble and he can go at you. “There are similarities with (Luis) Suarez a little bit by going at you, by being where you do not expect him to be in the box, and by having that huge desire to be at the end of things.” last_img read more

Arthur hits back at critics after Pakistan surrender

first_img(REUTERS)-Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur conceded his team were woeful in Sunday’s Champions Trophy defeat against India but said it was an “insult” to suggest that the squad had regressed under him.In the end, one of the most eagerly awaited matches of the tournament proved a damp squib as India utterly dominated every aspect of a stop-start, rain-interrupted 124-run victory.“That’s a total insult to say we’re playing even worse,” said the 49-year-old South African, who took on the role a little more than a year ago, after his team succumbed meekly at a packed Edgbaston ground.“If you have a look at our records over the last year we’ve won two series. We’ve got ourselves from nine to number eight (in the ODI rankings) and our brand of cricket has changed.”Pakistan won the toss but nothing else went right for them as they dropped catches, persisted with bowlers who bled runs and folded inside 34 overs with the bat.“We had a poor game,” the former South Africa and Australia coach added. “But we’re obviously trying our best and we’re trying to change it.“It’s not going to happen overnight. We’re trying every day. Every time we go down to training, we try and get the basics right. We didn’t do it today. And that’s disappointing.”Apart from the manner of their surrender, Pakistan are also fretting on the fitness of fast bowlers Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz.Amir bowled 8.1 overs before developing severe cramp and leaving the field, while Riaz, who conceded 87 runs in 8.4 wicketless overs in the most expensive spell of five-plus overs in tournament history, hobbled off after twisting an ankle.“I don’t know why they’re cramping,” Arthur said. “That’s something that I need to take up with the medical team.”Pakistan play South Africa in their next Group B match at the same venue on Wednesday.last_img read more
